Industry insiders are saying that in addition to the current tablets that Asus has on the market - the MeMO Pad HD 7, the Nexus 7 (2013), the Fonepad 7, the new PadFone Infinity, and the Transformer Pad - the company is also working on the MeMo Pad HD 8, the MeMOFone HD 5, the FonePad Note FHD 6, and the PadFone mini, which could hit the market soon.
That is a lot of devices, especially since the company's most popular device is the Google-branded Nexus 7. But, the thinking is that Asus is trying to diversify and find more users outside of the Nexus because the company may not be making the next generation Nexus 7 that will likely come out next summer. Of course, there have been consistent rumors that Asus is taking over the Nexus 10 reins from Samsung, but the 10 is not nearly as popular as the 7.

There was a Nexus 7 just released a little while ago. Why are we already talking about the next one?

Maybe because there already is rumor about the future? (rhetorical question)

That's good news to me... Asus build quality is just not very good imo.

Actually the higher end asus android tablets are some of the best quality tablets for android. On the Nexus devices they cut corners to make it worth making. If it was super high build quality it would not be profitable.

Nexus devices are hardly profitable to manufacturers really. Since they're aimed at selling as many as possible to people to get them to view ad content. It's not hard to understand why a company would want to profit more off of their own native products than subbing to be a proxy for a product like Google's Nexus line up.
